The first trailer for the film adaptation of the cult hit series ‘Veronica Mars’ features Kristen Bell as a successful lawyer.
Bell starred as a teenage private investigator under the watchful eye of her detective father in the original television series that aired from 2004-2007 on The CW network.
Fans of the popular show were bummed when it ended, so Bell and series creator Rob Thomas launched a fundraising campaign to produce the film through Kickstarter. They reached their goal of $2 million in less than ten hours and eventually raised $5.7 million.
Co-stars include Jerry O’Connell, Jamie Lee Curtis, Percy Daggs III, Jason Dohring, Francis Capra, Ryan Hansen, Tina Majorino, Chris Lowell, Enrico Colantoni, Ken Marino, Krysten Ritter and Max Greenfield. Appearing in cameo roles are Dax Shepard, Justin Long and James Franco.
Bell wed comedic actor and writer Dax Shepard in a civil ceremony at the Beverly Hills County Clerk’s Office on October 17, 2013, seven months after the arrival of their daughter Lincoln Bell Shepard.
‘Veronica Mars’ will be released in theaters on March 14, 2014. Check out the trailer below:
